To All,

I have Avast Home Edition running on my PC and it keeps on coming with virus warning saying I have "Win32: Trojan-gen {other}" virus on my PC. It's in c:\documents and settings\User\local settings\Temp\ directory. I have used other antivirus softwares to scan the hard drive and they haven't found anything. I have used Maleware Bytes' anti maleware as well to scan. I then wiped out my hard drive and re-installed XP. The warning is back again. I have nothing on this PC right now ecxept Office 2003. All the Microsoft updates/patches have been applied. Anyone know how to remove this? Is Avast warning real or false? When I go into the above directory in Temp, the folders that Avast says have virus have the following files:


Someone please help me on this issue. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help and support!
